    I can't help but think DP will tire as the match goes on, but yes- this is set to be a good one!
    No doubt. He basically lost the Indian Wells final and Wimbledon semi in 13 because he does'nt have the steroid like fitness of others.

    At any rate, even if he loses tonight i can't wait for the US Open. To have the Del Potro forehand firing again is very apetising.

    I don't mind the water events for some reason. If I had to pick one it'd be the diving.

    The Olympics is the perfect thing to have on my second monitor (which I just can't have blank)

    About 50% the human fatalaty figure, more than the human casualty figure, although what's given does sound exaggerated. Similar number of fatalities as WWII.

    It's also being reported Merkel is telling big businesses they should employ refugees, apparently they're joining Democrat America in trying to encourage employment of illegal immigrants.

    Wonder how she'd pull that one off. If a refugee is best for the job and legally entitled to work, I'm sure big businesses would hire them. If anything it's small business where there's a greater risk of discrimination and even then it's overstated.

    Does anyone here think the Republicans could lose the House in November? Heard it from a lot of people now but I just absolutely don't see it so I'd love to hear reasoning.

    The impact of Trump on moderate Republicans or floating voters, especially in tight seats, will be interesting to watch. The same goes for the Senate.

    The Republicans could lose both if Trump alienates enough people beyond his core support.

    Probably not, Rubio is already showing campaigning explicitly distancing from Trump neutralises the "damage" a lot, however I'm not one for trusting polls when pollsters are mysteriously changing methodology and erasing any evidence of it which suddenly gives Clinton 5-10 more points with not so much as a comment to say "we've changed methodology" which just smells fishy. Even with literally the entire establishment attacking Trump and defending Clinton I don't think he can quite be ruled out yet.

    The simple answer is No given the kind of seats which are up for grabs this year. In the lower House the Republicans are the strongest they've been in several decades in terms of holding it for most of Obama's reign.

    Swing state polling (bar Kansas) had not thrown up any real shocks the last time i performed analysis, that suggested Hilary to win but by an amount ranging from pitiful to moderate.

    I'd therefore add two things..

    1) If Trump is losing people it's probably in the heartlands which are relatively safe (a bit like Ukip stealing some Tory votes in the Shires).

    2) Watch Hilary roll out her husband in places like Arkensas.
